“But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.” Colossians 3:14
I have read and have also prayed this verse over my life for years but within the last few months I have more of an understanding of this verse. First of all it says above all these things (the things are mentioned in the verses before). So to me, it is saying this is IMPORTANT if it’s above all these things.
The other part that has really stood out to me is “PUT ON LOVE”. I started thinking about how every day we need to put on our clothes, put on our make up (some of us), put on our shoes, etc. So just like we need to put on all of those things, we need to PUT ON LOVE!
Walking in love is not an option (it can be challenging sometimes); just like putting our clothes on before we leave our house isn’t an option.
It would stink or be toxic if we didn’t put on deodorant (in all aspects). The same is true about love.
I love how the Amplified Bible puts this verse – “And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.”
Don’t forget to WEAR love today! Thanks for reading! EnJOY your day!
And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
